Seeking experienced teachers of Spanish for Virtual Languages Mentoring Network
Posted: 14 Mar 2017 08:38 PM PDT
We are seeking expressions of interest from experienced teachers of Spanish who would be interested in mentoring early career teachers through the Virtual Languages Mentoring Network (VLMN).
The VLMN is designed to support beginning and/or isolated languages teachers 7-12, especially those without the support of a head teacher with languages background. Early career and geographically remote teachers of languages often work as the only language teacher in a school, or the only teacher of their specific language and have professional development needs and questions about day-to-day pedagogy which cannot always be met at school level.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor to early career Spanish language teachers, please contact Michelle Walls by email or on 02 9244 5573 as soon as possible.
